Compensation's Role in a Successful M&A

Event Details

May 19, 2016

The record level of merger and acquisition activity in 2015 is predicted to continue through 2016, yet recent studies suggest that 50% or more of mergers and acquisitions fail to unlock the potential of the deal. What actions should your board take from both a strategic and tactical perspective to improve your odds?

Join Pearl Meyer and the NACD on our May 19 webcast for an in-depth review of the important role human resource management and compensation plans can play in making a successful M&A happen. We will look at the strategic elements, such as leadership planning and aligning compensation to support the goals of the new entity, as well as the critical legal and tax issues related to contracts, change-in-control payouts, and 280G calculations.
